2021 Guide to Tree Lightings, Special Events & Live Nativities Lynda Lantz Editor Miami Mom Collective

This guide is brought to you by Pinecrest Gardens

A Resource of Miami Area Tree Lightings, Special Events & Live Nativities

There are so many ways to celebrate and enjoy this wonderful season. Tree lightings, special events, and live nativities depicting the birth of Jesus are great ways to take the holidays in with the whole family.

So grab your calendar and carve out some time to make some holiday memories or continue building long-standing traditions with your kids. These are the sweet things they’ll remember and carry with them, long after those new toys are packed away.

If you know of any tree lightings, special events, or live nativities that you do not see listed in our guide, we’d love to know! Send an email to info{at}miamimomcollective.com. 

The entire team at Miami Mom Collective wishes you and your family a joyful and fun-filled holiday season!

Pinecrest Gardens transforms into a winter wonderland dotted by thousands of twinkling lights that go up, through, and around the whimsical botanical landscape. This year the botanical garden is adding more sections of sparkling holiday lights and a bigger than last year’s holiday-themed maze in the gardens.

Eat yummy treats, have a signature Pinecrest Gardens cocktail, and enjoy magical Story Time with Mrs. Claus. Stay tuned for special appearances from Santa Claus. On select evenings, admission includes a holiday concert performance in the historic Banyan Bowl.
